Based on advice from NHS England, I have taken the decision to remain open for essential eye care. Routine care has stopped based on this advice. Where possible, essential eye care will be done remotely, only seeing face to face those who cannot be helped in other ways. Essential eye care includes where a delay in examination may be detrimental to a patient's sight or wellbeing. This includes where a patient may have broken or lost a pair of glasses or contact lenses and need a replacement pair to function. Visits to the practice will need to be pre-arranged, in order to adhere to safety guidelines.
I recommend that you call or email us if you have any questions about the health of your eyes (please include your telephone number and which practice you normally attend in the email). In some cases (subject to the date of your last sight test and our current frame stock) we may be able to make up and post out an emergency pair of spectacles based on your previous prescription and frame order.
If you are a contact lens wearer please let us know if you require any further supplies and we can arrange for them to be posted to you, even if you usually collect them from us.

Please bear with us during these challenging times and stay safe.
